USI classes went on a virtual field trip of the Museum of Work and Culture in Woonsocket. They “traveled” from exhibit to exhibit witnessing the migration of French Canadians into the textile factory towns of Rhode Island. The transition from farming to factory work was a major factor in the way the new Americans acclimated to city life in the United States

Students Displaying any Symptoms
Unfortunately, we are not at the end of the pandemic yet. We are asking that students and parents continue to pay close attention to any symptoms before attending school or a practice/game.
If any student is experiencing symptoms, they should err on the side of caution and stay home. If you are on one of our teams and there is a positive COVID-19 case, the entire team will be under quarantine. Please stay home and get tested if needed. If a student tests positive and was in school, we ask that parents contact the school so that we can get a "head start" on any contact tracing.
Thank you for your anticipated partnership
